About this trip

This is the journey we seek to find ourselves ‘anew’ again. After a fragmented period of new norms and worries our need to feel present and re-define ourselves is almost imperative. Alessandra Oram, returns to the island she loved, to guide us through movement into a physical and mental transformation. This is a 6-day retreat featuring a dedicated program of Navakarana flows (Alessandra’s signature Vinyasa practice), daily adventures at the magical seascapes of Koufonisia and a well-curated menu of macrobiotic Greek diet. If you wish to experience how transformation feels like, then you’re at the right place. The retreat will be limited to a small group of people to provide a boutique experience.


Koufonisia is the perfect place to feel wild & free and appreciate space again. You can shape the day the way you want and walk the whole place within 3 hours. Our yoga program is also designed to gradually build up this body movement and mobility that reminds us how it feels to be free and having options. The option to live life the way you want to.

THE YOGA RESORT

Our yoga resort is a bliss for the heart & mind! 


Overlooking one of the most beautiful beaches of Koufonisia, it offers amazing views to the Aegean and great outdoor spaces with minimal design where you can either relax with your favourite book or spend time with like minded people. There are share, twin and single room options available. All rooms are simple and comfy with Cycladic aesthetics and bright details.


There is a dedicated yogashala which is a peaceful and protected space created with natural materials in between lavender and olive trees where you can truly find yourself at peace and rejoice. 

OUR TEACHER

Alessandra Oram is a very charismatic Vinyasa yoga teacher and one of the most upcoming names in the European yoga scene. She is a Navakarana Vinyasa teacher, a yoga studio owner in Barcelona and an Oysho yoga ambassador. Alessandra, balances life between yoga & interior design for the past 7 years but it was only when she met her Guru, Dario Calvaruso, and completed her Navakarana Yoga teacher training, that she fully committed herself to her yoga path as a teacher. 

* All practices are open to all levels from beginners to more advanced yogis.

TRUE FOOD

Our Koufonisia nutrition is catered by our private chef who is an expert in vegan - vegetarian macrobiotic cuisine. His approach to food means the art of longevity and well-being, in a system that combines the ancient wisdom and tradition with the modern knowledge and needs. A Macrobiotic practice aims at being able to acknowledge our needs in relation to our environment, and make such choices so that we are in harmony with it and in good health.

We had an incredible experience! Amazing accommodations, authentic cuisine, with an incredible instructor and facilitator! Five star review, through and through.

Anna and Eranthi are Greek goddesses incarnate! These beautiful souls were responsible for organizing our trans-formative week with Chelsey Korus. Anna made sure no detail was overlooked and Eranthi was the most patient den mother, both of them herding us like cats to make sure we all did what we went there to do. Thanks and 5 stars aren't enough to both of them for taking such good care of us.

I just returned from the retreat in Greece with Fykiada. The location was 5 star and the yoga practice was exceptional. I think the Fykiada team needs to update their site to say all is not included ( excursions) in their package. We were able to talk to them about it while there but it seemed very apparent the website does not match what they offer. Another correction should be that this is a remote location, not near a town, which was ok for some of us but the website painted a picture that we were closer to a village to experience island life. The cost should be lowered, in my opinion. The food was good but minimal and recycled. Not much variety and no options between meals. Only water was available for lunch and dinner, no espresso or quality coffee served at breakfast. I’ve been on a handful of lower cost European retreats and had many extras included and a variety of local cuisine choices provided. Otherwise the practice with Meredith and the house were perfect.
